Offering private lessons in German, English, French or Arabic in my drum room in Tempelhof, Berlin & online for beginners & advanced drummers. Two professional acoustic drums & cymbals along with practice pads are always set & ready for lessons in the room.

With over 15 years of teaching drums experience in various schools and privately, I have developed my own teaching approach combining the German, French and American methodologies.

Topics during lessons:
  • Groove, basic & advanced rhythms.
  • Technique, developing muscle memory to use the correct hand & foot technique at the right time.
  • Rudiments, every drummer should learn the 26 basic rudiments. There are much more hybrids and combinations along with feet Ostinatoes.
  • Independence, 4 way control on the kit.
  • Drum Notation/Theory, just like reading and writing in any language.
  • Sight & Sheet Reading, in order to be able to play with a band/big band.
  • Comping, for independence & faster reading.
  • Styles, funk, rock, jazz, reggae, afro-cuban, pop, oriental… the list goes on.
  • Posture, for correct playing without any injuries.  
  • Play-alongs, a lot is learned here, and some fun is always good.
